Olivia Munn And Justin Theroux Join 'Violet', Justine Bateman's Directorial Debut

Jason Bateman has a sister? Oooooh yeah, she was the one who was in Family Ties and...Satisfaction? Her brother made his directorial debut a few years ago with Bad Words then followed it up with The Family Fang, two very impressing showings. Now Justine Bateman is stepping behind the camera for the first time and she's already got an impressive starring duo in Olivia Munn and Justin Theroux.

Munn and Theroux will star in Violet, which Bateman both wrote and will direct. Anthony LaPaglia is also part of the cast. The story follows a rising film executive (Munn) who lives according to the Voice (Theroux) in her head, until unexpectedly realizing the truth — it’s been lying about everything. LaPaglia portrays her boss, who dilutes her confidence in a way similar to the Voice.

Munn and Theroux last worked together on The Lego Ninjago Movie.

Bateman has mostly stayed out of the spotlight during her career, appearing mostly in random TV shows like Desperate Housewives and Californication. Her last film role was in the 2013 indie thriller Deep Dark Canyon.
